The Westfield High School Girls' Volleyball Team is sponsoring its fifth annual volleyball event, now known as "Pink Out" on Friday October 11, 2013, at Westfield High School, to raise funds and promote public awareness as National Breast Cancer Awareness Month begins.
"Pink Out" was started five years ago and became a tribute to the girls' inspirational Coach Bev Torok. Five years ago, Coach Torok revealed to her team that she was diagnosed with breast cancer and pledged to battle the deadly disease. The team marveled at their coach's bravery and unyielding spirit as she continued to work while she recuperated from surgery and endured rounds of debilitating chemotherapy.
This page was created to help the Team raise funds for this worthy cause, so please give what you can to support Susan G. Komen!

Please Know Your Your Breast Health...
The key to survival is early detection.
The greatest risk factors for breast cancer are being female and growing older. Breast cancer knows no boundary, be it age, gender, socio-economic status or geographic location. We must continue to keep breast cancer top of mind because it affects so many!
One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. That’s one in eight within your company, school and organization. Now is the time to take action, to secure a long, healthy future for our mothers, daughters, sisters and friends!
Three simple steps for early detection are regular mammograms, clinical exams and breast self- exams. It is important to make healthy lifestyle choices.
And, remember, breast cancer affects more than just the patient; friends and family need support too.
Susan G. Komen …
For the past 25 years, Komen has played a critical role in every major advance in the fight against breast cancer transforming how the world talks about and treats this disease and helping to turn millions of breast cancer patients into breast cancer survivors.
Over the next 25 years, an estimated 25 million women around the world will be diagnosed with breast cancer if we don’t find a cure. Komen will not stop until the cures are found and delivered.
We Will Find the Cure!
